on how far up the chain this might the going. >> the state department is promising to work with speak are baner and other lawmake tore satisfy outstanding d for benghazi evidence, even though the obama administration saw not much new emerging from the testimony yesterday. >> these issues were sort of hyped up by someone, whether the media or capitol hill, as new information-but we had a thorough and credible investigation. they told some stories that were, again, very personal about their experiences, but in terms of adding new information, about what occurred, that is not what we saw transpire. >> congressional republicans say wednesday's testimony by state department his blowers created new avenues for the investigation of benghazi, and speaker boehner thronged to use all the powers of congress to pursue them. >> i am confident our five committeesing too this investigation. they understand very clearly from me that we have a very serious and solemn obligation to get to the truth of what happened. >> democrats on the house oversight committee say the hearings showed the falseie of t
obama traveled to texas today to tout his jobs plan, but it may prove to be a tough sell in a state that has not exactly bought into his job creation philosophy. here's white house correspondent wendell goler. >> reporter: deep in the heart of the red state of texas, president obama tried to sell a jobs proposal that republicans, including one who wanted his job, have largely rejected. with government seed money, mr. obama wants to partner universities and businesses to form product manufacturing institutes, to advance his three main goals for american workers. >> we've got to make america a magnet for good jobs. second, we've got to help people earn the education and develop the skills they need to do those jobs. and number three, we've got to make sure that people who are working hard are able to achieve a decent living. >> reporter: the institutes proposal was announced in his state of the union address. despite the i sequester spending cuts, the administration squeezed out enough money to build three of them. >> this reflects the president being willing to cut and lower priority
was appointed by president obama a little more than two years ago to be united states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to understand what the issues are
and the explanation we were given by president obama and then secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with with. >> you had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who is extremely offensive video directed at muhammed and islam extremists and terrorists, used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies including the consulate in libya. >> but here's what gregory hicks, the second highest ranking official on the ground at the time told congress yesterday. >> do you report to nip in washington within the first couple of days that flfs there a protest in connection to a youtube video? >> the only report that our mission made through every channel was that there had been an attack on a consulate. >> so at this table, we assumed all the things we found out yesterday to be true, but we were giving people buckets full of the benefit of the doubt. now they don't deserve that any more, eric. what do you think? >> i think there are two time line
. >> the obama administration's case was cowardly, duplicitous and they sacrificed american lives for politics. >> jon: you know what actually outrage justified. the president of the united states to consciously allow americans to die to protect his own political chances is damni damning. your level of anger is in fact justified. as is the question you've been asking now for eight months. >> where is the media outrage on libya and benghazi? >> why is this story not getting more coverage in the mainstream media. >> where is the outrage. jon: yes! that came out of nowhere. where is the outrage? over obama's cover-up. which we know is indeed the case. >> that indeed was the case. jon: that indeed was the case. wait a minute. if that indeed is the case, see, i think i know what's going on here. this definitely happened, not if that indeed was the case. you see what i'm saying? that's why people may not be outraged because i think you're saying you're not sure yet. >> what if the president lied about benghazi and what if, in fact, he knew about this much earlier? >> what if it turns out that their
? >> if a man is not popular in the united states senator that means he is a, doing the right thing, and b, serving his country. barack obama was running for president before he was ever elected to the senate. he started during the convention with kerry in '04 when he was still a state senator. for harry reid to call this guy a bully -- harry reid is one of the biggest bullies to ever serve in congress. i mean with his 30-year ties to organized crime -- >> michael: no. no. no. >> woe. woe. woe, dude. >> michael: jack, you -- you are often at odds with how i feel but you are never this unreasonable. the idea that harry reid is a bully. i wouldn't disagree with that. he is also the majority leader and has been there for quite and while and has earned that status. there is no written rule that ted cruz can't do what he is doing -- >> do you know the tactics reid uses in the senate. he has abused his powers as a majority leader more than any majority leader i can remember. thinking at least back 30, 35 years, i can't think of anyone in either party who has ever so abused
tried to block the truth from coming out, that's the obama white house. former secretary of state helped them do it. that's what they say. the focus seems mostly shifted, by the way, to clinton now, not obama. they seem to be after her right now. these revelations yesterday had to do with what hillary knew and what she did or didn't do during and after the attacks. for example, we now know that clinton phoned the embassy in tripoli the night of the attacks and spoke with the dcm, deputy chief of mission at the time, gregory hicks. hicks also said clinton's chief of staff, sheryl mills, tried to intimidate him after he spoke with the u.s. congressman, a republican, about the attacks without a state department lawyer being present. my question today, what kind of a picture does this all add up to? where are we headed with this? lisa myers is the great senior investigative reporter for nbc news 37 jeremy peters is a political reporter for "the new york times." we have two good people here. let's try to figure out the f t facts yesterday. ma did we learn yesterday that seems to be exposing
president obama would like these two to sit on the united states tax court. not casting aspersions on the tax court or on these very accomplished nominees, but one measure of the fact these guys aren't the highest profile nominees in the world is in the headline announcing these nominations today, they misspell one of the guy's names. the other guy's name does get spelled right, but he is obscure enough if you google what he is, what pops up on google is this nice picture of a band playing music at a california winery in 2006. if that's what you're competing with for google search results on your own name and you're losing that competition to music festivals at california wineries from seven years ago, you may be a very esteemed potential tax court judge, but you are not a high profile guy and your nomination is not a high profile thing. but even for nominations like this that are relatively insignificant in the greater scale of governing, the president still needs permission to go ahead with hires like this. he can't just pick the appointees he wants. he can only nominate people.
the turks feel, but the jordanians, the saudis, some of the other gulf states, that president obama made the red line, drew that red line, and hasn't followed up as fast as they would like. >> well, my own view for what it is worth is that if you make it -- when you make a decision to use military force, if that's what's in question here, you have to be sure of the facts. we learned this lesson in iraq in 2003. if president obama is going to take a couple of weeks to make sure that we have evidence that syria used chemical weapons, to me, that's the right decision because our credibility rests on the charges that we make. and so we have to be absolutely sure. having said that, when you do draw a line in the sand and dare someone, especially in the middle east, across it, if he or she does, then you have to respond, i think credibility is important here. and i know the administration is trying to think, how do we respond, is it arming the moderate rebels, is it a series of air strikes against assad's military assets in order to degrade them. i think the united states if it does decide the
. norah jones was topping music charts and barack obama was a young state senator from illinois and few people outside of that state had heard of him. >>> coming up you'll see dash cam video of a traffic stop involving ariel castro several years ago. could police have busted the case wide open back then? >>> up next, the lawyers, lawmakers holding their first hearing on the boston marathon bombings. were there warning signs that could have headed off that tragedy? i am an american success story. i'm a teacher. i'm a firefighter. i'm a carpenter. i'm an accountant. a mechanical engineer. and i shop at walmart. truth is, over sixty percent of america shops at walmart every month. i find what i need, at a great price. and the money i save goes to important things. braces for my daughter. a little something for my son's college fund. when people look at me, i hope they see someone building a better life. vo: living better: that's the real walmart. sorry to interrupt, i just want to say, i combined home and auto with state farm, saved 760 bucks. love this guy. okay, does it bother anybody el

the bullets, then the obama government can wage unopposed violent war on the disarmed populous of the united states. open your eyes, sheeple. but in hosting senator inhofe to spell all this out, laura ingraham, the talk show host, god bless her, actually asked the senator useful follow-up questions to try to get him to explain exactly how this conspiracy works. listen. >> what are they going to do if they want to violate our second amendment rights, do it with ammo. >> can you explain this to me, what do they need it for? >> well, they don't. that's the point. >> but it had been purchased before obama by the federal government. >> no, not these numbers, now, laura. not these numbers. and the best evidence of that is look what happened to the supply. the supply is gone, and where did they go, the supply some of it, of course, people knowing -- >> buying up. >> -- wants to take it up, buying it up, but not to those proportions. now, i know this for a fact because i know the people that are, you know, are concerned about this, and so there's no downside, if i'm wrong on this. >> the last part o
to refuel the planes. a top state department counterterrorism official in washington, mark thompson, also accused the obama administration of holding back resources. he leads the u.s.-based foreign emergency support team and assumed they'd immediately deploy. >> i wanted that considered. i notified the white house of my idea. they indicated that meetings had already taken place that evening that had taken fest out of the menu of options. >> reporter: the white house has said benghazi was beyond the scope of the fest team and that they wouldn't have arrived in time to help. republican jason chaffetz. >> why was fest not called into action. >> the reason i was given was that this was not the time for the fest, it might be too unsafe for the fest. >> reporter: after spending four hours securing the tripoli embassy, which was also under threat of attack, hicks tried to fly a four-man special forces team headed by a lieutenant colonel to benghazi to help but he says the defense department stopped them from boarding the plane. >> lieutenant colonel gibson was furious. i had told him to go bring
political overtones to this trip, martin. that president obama is perhaps trying to make this state a battleground state by 2020. the white house saying politics not at play, this is purely about the economics. certainly an interesting point to consider. martin? >> absolutely. kristen, the house republicans, of course, have blocked the president's jobs act. and speaker boehner warmed over some criticism of the president on jobs today. but then he suddenly started speaking some sense. take a listen. >> we can't cut our way to prosperity. we need real economic growth. >> now, i had to check that i was hearing that right, kristen. the speaker of the house, the republican speaker says we cannot cut our way to prosperity. and yet we just spent the last five years hearing him say the exact thing. >> reporter: well, look, democrats have seized upon those comments today, martin. i can tell you i've been speaking with officials with house speaker john boehner's office. they point out that the house speaker also talked about the need to reform the tax code, to reform regulatory codes. so they

? >> no protest. >> further evidence that mr. obama's aides knew rice's narrative was false came when a gop law maker read from a previously undisclosed e-mail that beth jones, acting assistant secretary of state for the middle east, sent on september 12 about her discussions with the libyan ambassador. >> this is from miss jones to you, counsel for hillary clinton, to victoria nuland, to mr. kennedy, and i'm going to read from it. when he said his government suspected former gadhafi regime elements carried out the attack attacks, i told him that the group that conducted the attacks ansar al-shariah, is affiliated with islamic terrorists. >> on september 14, a document published, likewise stated, we do know that islamic extremists with ties to al-qaeda participated in the attack. yet rice and other senior u.s. officials far from putting out every piece of information as they got it, continued to press the false narrative. >> our initial information and that includes all information -- we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> i wish i c

important and where do we have to rethink our policies the most seriously? the obama administration's within wrestling with these issues throughout the arab world, none of which we created. none are in a stable state some more promising than others. i would have a serious debate with egypt and syria the most important, the countries where we don't have easy answers. that's where our strategic interests are still in play. libya is a strategic side show compared to egypt and syria. if you want to assess hillary clinton or president obama and worry about the middle east and what it's doing for the future, you've got the event. it's a travesty for the four lives lost, a tragedy in those terms. it is not a huge setback for the united states. i'm persuaded it was not a cover up. i guess that's what we're going to have to talk about until everyone is satisfied they've got to the bottom on that. there were botched decisions along the way but these are the mistakes you make in the real world trying to deal with a complex international environment. nobody's finest hour, understandable but not a huge s
them whistleblowers. three state department executives who have come forward challenging the obama administration's handling of the benghazi attacks. >> it matters to me personally, and it matters to my colleagues, my colleagues at the department of state. >> reporter: in emotional testimony, gregory hicks, a former deputy chief of mission in libya, described the night ambassador chris stevens and the three other americans were killed. >> i got the ambassador on the other end, and he said, greg, we're under attack. >> reporter: hicks believes the obama administration could have done more that night. he says he repeatedly inquired about whether military support was on the way. hicks claims a special forces unit in tripoli was prepared to board a flight to benghazi, but they were told not to because they didn't have authorization. >> they were furious. >> reporter: in the days after the attack, u.n. ambassador susan rice recited talking points from intelligence officials that the attack was the result of a spontaneous protest. hicks says rice never asked him about that night. the oba
in washington. republicans appear to have moved on from president obama and are back to focusing on the woman they really used to love to hate. former secretary of state hillary clinton. the same hearing room that featured political wrangling over the years on witwater, house republicans held a charged congressional hearing on the mbenbenghazi attacks. 22 year career diplomat gregory hicks stationed at the embassy in tripoli that night gave a rifting account of the night four americans were killed which began with his attempts to reach ambassador chris stevens on the phone. >> i got the ambassador on the other end. he said, greg, we're under attack. about 3:00 a.m., i received a call from the prime minister of libya. i think it's the saddest phone call i've ever had in my life. and he told me that ambassador stevens had passed away. >> hicks also testified that as the attack continued with a second assault on a nearby cia outpost, which was not known to be cia at the time, he and a defense attache begged for airport. the pentagon refused. >> lieutenant colonel gibson was furious. i had told h
bush as speaker and leader and now with president obama. in both case, when you're meeting with the president of the united states, it is historic every time. leaders and the president and the respect for each of us have for the offices that we hold is really important. so when president bush was president or the speaker, it was always about how can we work together to get something done? here's the presidency and all the power it has and of course, the legislative branch, the first article of the constitution. of course, we have differences, the iraq war and privatizing security. but we did many things using the power of our offices. the biggest energy bill in our country, the mental health, and coming to the president's rescue when his own party deserted him. the bills for a low-income tax credit. you always see opportunity when relationships between the leaders and the power of the presidency. having dinner last night again it drives home all the opportunities that the presidency can bring. clearly, we have a president who is a visionary, a person who is knowledgeable on
on president obama to release more information about benghazi. last hour he said he wants the release of e-mails that a senior state department official sent to her superiors saying she had told the libyan ambassador the attack was conducted by islamic terrorists. the e-mails were brought up during yesterday's house hearing. >> the state department would not allow our committees to keep copies of this e-mail when it was reviewed. i would call on the president to order the state department to release this e-mail so the american people can see it. >> that e-mail was sent a day after the attack and four days before ambassador susan rice went on the sunday talk shows to say that there was no indication that it was terror. >>> that's going to wrap up this hour for me. i'll see you back here tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. eastern.

is all of this evidence that will destroy obama going to destroy hillary clinton? there were two things that came out. this guy greg hicks disgruntled state department guy. he testifies hey i asked for fighter jets to come in and the pentagon turned me down. well, leon panetta pointed out right, that the nearest fighter jets -- he said if they had flown fighter jets in, flown over, that could have stopped -- the killing stopped the terrorism. stopped the attack that was going on underneath. leon panetta pointed out the nearest jets were in aviano air force base, italy. they were not on stand-by. maybe they should have been. they were not. it would have taken at least nine hours to round up the crew, get the jets ready get to libya. meanwhile, the tankers needed to refuel them for that mission. were not available because they were over in england. so panetta said it was impossible. mission impossible. then another guy testified and he said well, i ask that this -- it is called fest, it is an elite striker fight force be sent from tripoli to benghazi and that was turned down by the pentag

obama said we need another 100,000 stem future. we knew the government weren't going of the money to do this state and local level so we got two dozen partners and going to fill about 30% of that gap to just totally private commitment. but why wouldn't you do that? the other thing, we need to be careful here. one of the great good news stores in the world over the last five years is texaco. which has followed brazil and reducing income inequality. a president who just left, called around, is too famous for the drug was on her border and too little known for starting 140 tuition free universities that produced, among other things last year, 113,000 engine and graduates. and we've had no net in migration from mexico for the last two years. the dream of nafta is going to pay off. they're going to be are equal trading partner. we're going to work together to build up the americas. they're getting all kinds of investment from asia, moving back here. and in satellite areas like, people are coming to the caribbean now, all because we believe in the promise of a partnership with mexico. we shou
